    Default How to block sender in Gmail

    How to block a sender in Gmail?

    Google search shows:

    "In the top right hand corner of a message, click the drop-down menu button (upside down triangle), and select "block." (It appears with the name of the sender in quotes.)"

    But, I couldn't find this option!

    Open the email message and click on the 3 vertical dots to select the 'block' option.

    Clicked on the 3 vertical dots, only have the following options:

    Mark as read
    Mark as important
    Add star
    Create event
    Filter message like these
    Mute

    I get a block option
    Are you opening the email in the browser or some client arrangement?

    It is the three dots on the right on the same line as the senders name that shows the block option not the ones at the top right of the page.

    Look for the three dots at the right on the same line as the senders name not the ones at the top right of the page.
    I have checked this on three machines here, both in the web browser interface and in the Android App. Each case shows the Block option as already described.
